A vast landscape of temples, majestic pagodas and natural wonders, a world away from the everyday

Discover the exotic, enthralling country of Myanmar in style with Jacada Travel’s expert local guides, private tours, seamless transfers, the best hotels, and a completely personalised itinerary.

After years of being cut off from international tourism, Myanmar – formerly Burma – has re-established itself as a destination like no other. In 1890, Rudyard Kipling declared the country to be ‘unlike any place you know about’, and today’s visitors still experience this same sense of wonder.

Evocative of the ancient Orient, Myanmar will captivate you with its untouched beauty and spirituality: experience the sublime scenery of Bagan, a terrain strewn with thousands of ancient temples; visit the caves of rural Pindaya to discover pilgrims meditating by thousands of gilded Buddha effigies; witness the famous leg-rowing technique of Inle Lake’s fishermen; and then unwind along the beautiful Bay of Bengal, where long, tranquil stretches of white sandy beaches and azure waters await.

Myanmar’s landscape is rapidly changing with the recent surge of international interest and I would urge all those interested in the country to travel there as soon as possible, before the influx of large hotels and fellow travellers will inevitably change the experience. There’s a quiet charm to the countryside as you see women farming rice, the leg fishermen working and the colourful markets full of fresh produce in the same way as generations past. The integral influence of Buddhism makes Myanmar a peaceful and fascinating place to visit. One of my favourite experiences has to be chugging across Inle Lake, a vast lake flanked either side by mountains, early one morning. A light mist had settled on the lake turning the mountains blue in the distance and we passed many men rowing their traditional boats with their legs and others precariously balanced on the side of the boats as they plunged wooden cage contraptions over the side. It was such a beautiful and peaceful way to start the day.

When to go

Myanmar has a tropical climate and is warm year-round. The drier winter months are best for travelling, with cooler night-time temperatures. Bagan and Mandalay are the hottest and driest regions and best avoided in summer.
